Finish the fence. I only wish that it were made of concrete instead.
Another "Heartwarming Story" of poor "immigrants" who are "victims" phlease!

More like Drug runners and potential Identity Thieves.. "Another One Bites the Dust"..

I agree that they should finish the fence, but they should make it High Voltage electrical.. They should post warning signs therefore the people who attempt to cross it will be forewarned.. I also think they should put military troops on the border..

Ok lets compromise. We can add the razor wire and have trained polar bears patroling the border.

Although I'm not going to be bothered with any opinions on this forum because I find it beneath my attention to even bother to address this absurb and contrived "issue", I did want to stop by and say kudos to you for summing the whole issue up for what it is.

I wonder when Reagan's ghost will turn up on the Mexican border saying "Mr Bush, tear down this wall..."

Finally I'll note that BushCo passed legislation making immigration from SAUDI significantly easier. Not to mention that particular episode of Saudi emmigration on 9/13/01. Hmmmm... no rightwingers blabbering about that, eh?
A signature of the liberal mind is the ability to see
themselves as brilliant while missing the obvious.
The Berlin wall was to imprison east German citizens.
The border 'fence' is an experession of our sovereign
right to define and control our border.

If anything president Reagan would have encouraged
President Bush to get a move on.

When they come into the United States it is OUR problem. But we could at least treat them decently and not like they are dirt on the bottom of shoes. And as far as winning the lotto lol I would say on here it would equate to winning the booby prize. Born and bred here locito trying to empathize with the immigrants.

Where would you go? Would you fight for your country? or would you MIGRATE to Canada?
I'm not racist. I don't like ANY immigrant, and immigrants can be of any race. I don't even like people from the Midwest and Northeast coming to Florida.

Treating illegal aliens as criminals is not treating them like dirt-----------why should they get a free pass if US citizen criminals are punished once caught?

My guess is that you dont live in a sanctuary city like I do where illegal aliens run rampant in our streets, bankrupting our hospitals, schools, and welfare system. Get back to me when you pull into a Home depot and get acosted by 50 illegal aliens running up to your car. Until then, you are just an observer.

Maybe we should also treat people that break in and rob our homes well too.. Maybe fix them a sandwich and ensure that they receive medical treatment for any injury incurred while breaking into my home?

If we treated them like dirt, we wouldn’t provide them with a tax-funded K-12 education (including ESL classes, free breakfast/lunch); “free” ER visits, or any of the other services they receive. They are the only group of criminals receiving government sanctioned rewards for their crimes.
